Bought this '98 Rav4 in 2001 for
driving around town and light off-road
excursions. It has been extremely
reliable and performs well in Southern
Arizona. Handles well in tight spots
and seems to be holding up to the
rugged road conditions in "The Old
Pueblo." Took it off-road a few times
and the AWD was perfect on dirt roads.
The 4 cyl. engine is a little
underpowered, but great fuel economy.
No major problems in over 3 years.
I purchased this vehicle in April 1998
so I could make out calls. My massage
table fits so easily in the back, as
does groceries and luggage. The car
has taken me and my friend on many out
of town trips. I have never had any
mecanical problem. I have only done
routine maintenance.There are no
rattles nor are there any cracks in
the dash. This is my 6th vechile and
by far the best one I've owned.
